Nervous Eaters - No More Idols
Breaking out of the steady stream of Sub Pop that I've been on lately. The Nervous Eaters were Boston legends in the 70's and 80's, with local hits "When I Talk To Loretta" (recently covered by Neko Case) and "Just Head"
So I was pretty excited to find a cheap 7" of theirs recently. This was some early 2000's effort of theirs put out on some Spanish label (my first foray into this century!). It rocks-a-plenty, but it doesn't live up to their 70's stuff. Their early stuff was riding at the forefront of the whole punk thing, and had a wild, unpredictable energy to it. Hard to keep that going for 30 years, I suppose.
